  1. Books & Maps: Add a Revision Date GH3284

    For books and maps, add a Revision Date in addition to the Publication Date. This is helpful for book reprint dates where some corrections and revisions may be made. It is especially helpful for maps there generally do not have new editions that get a new ISBN and Publication Date, but are revised and updated every few years.

  2. Make contributors other than "authors" be eligible for search GH3167

    When we perform a search on mb.org using contributor names, currently only "by" works. We'd like to make it so that searches for all contributors (photos by, epilogue by, etc. etc.) also works in search.

  3. Adding a Section/Tab to Books for Awards GH3073

    An idea we had some time ago was creating an Awards tab, much like "Descriptions" "Reviews" "Video" -- but at the time we decided against it because we thought it would be best to highlight it in the Description field anyways.

    But now that the feed to our 3rd parties are being more restrictive on the level of HTML we can have, the above argument against holds a lot less ground.

  4. Improve Universal Header Search for Books GH3048

    Overall we need to better promote books when using the site search in the universal header when the Books global header is being viewed. Here is some data and an idea. There are more ideas in the comments.

    ** When author name searched their books appear too far down results **

    When an author name is typed into the search bar often their books are found waaaay down the page, as is the case with these results when searching Molly Hashimoto and Heather Anderson:

  5. Improve Author-Book Relationship in Acumen and Plone GH3050

    In some cases, we have a contributor who has one role on one book and another role on another book (e.g. "by" and "Foreword by"). In these cases we end up with multiple contact records for the same contributor. In Plone, we have this covered with the "member," "book," and "book roster." In Acumen, we need to be sure that we have only one contributor record and use the "override role" field when their contribution is different from their primary role.

  6. Improve Address Management GH2975/3062/3146

    (1) When a user buys books or merchandise and checks out as a guest, use the shipping address they entered as the billing address on the page where we collect their credit card information. Or maybe it's better if we add a "Billing address is same as shipping address" checkbox above the billing address fields. This seems like the better, more common user experience.

    (2) Add shipping address fields to the contact profile and rename "address" fields to billing address. Use the shipping and billing addresses as defaults for purchase for logged in users. Sync the shipping address to Salesforce.

  7. Updating the Book Details Page "Reviews" Tab GH2889

    Under a product page (e.g. https://www.mountaineers.org/books/books/explore-europe-on-foot-your-complete-guide-to-planning-a-cultural-hiking-adventure) there’s the “Review” tab that we are currently pulling from Goodreads. We now want to replace the Goodreads Review with the Reviews data in Acumen: Prod Marketing -> Descriptive -> Review.

  8. Backordered and Pre-ordered Books & Merchandise: Email Notification SD306

    As a site visitor. for books and merchandise items that are "out of stock," that is backordered or per-ordered, allow me to request an email notification when the item is back in stock so I can choose to purchase the item then if I still want it.
